Women’s March Bay Area 2018

January 19, 2018

    Thousands are expected to march this Saturday in the Bay Area. Plan accordingly, we’re here to help.

    Whether you’re marching or not, this event will be hard to ignore. Public transportation will be heavily impacted by the number of people headed into San Francisco and Oakland as driving and parking will be nearly impossible. Moovit has the transportation information you need to navigate to/from/or around, the events this Saturday.
